The Multiple Types of Wall Water Fountains

You can find tranquility and silence when you add a wall fountain in your garden or patio. Moreover, it can be designed to fit into any wall space since it does not occupy much room. The requisite elements include a spout, a water basin, internal tubing, and a pump regardless of whether it is freestanding or secured. There are any number of models to pick from most notably traditional, contemporary, classic, or Asian.

With its basin situated on the ground, freestanding wall fountains, or floor fountains, are normally quite big in size.

On the other hand, a water feature attached to a wall can be integrated onto an existing wall or fit into a new wall.Multiple Types Wall Water Fountains 75800617194.jpg Incorporating this type of water feature into your landscape adds a cohesiveness to the look you want to achieve rather than making it seem as if the fountain was merely added later.

A Brief History of Early Outdoor Fountains

Brief History Early Outdoor Fountains 076390034910305.jpg Towns and communities depended on working water fountains to funnel water for preparing food, bathing, and cleaning from local sources like lakes, channels, or springs. In the years before electricity, the spray of fountains was driven by gravity exclusively, usually using an aqueduct or water source located far away in the nearby mountains. The splendor and wonder of fountains make them appropriate for historical memorials. If you saw the first fountains, you would not recognize them as fountains. The first known water fountain was a stone basin carved that was used as a container for drinking water and ceremonial functions. 2,000 BC is when the earliest known stone fountain basins were originally used. Gravity was the energy source that controlled the earliest water fountains. The location of the fountains was determined by the water source, which is why you’ll commonly find them along reservoirs, canals, or rivers. Fountains with ornate decoration started to show up in Rome in about 6 BC, commonly gods and animals, made with stone or bronze. A well-engineered system of reservoirs and aqueducts kept Rome's public water fountains supplied with fresh water.
